How must it be Catalonia seen from the heights? Palau Robert Foundation, located in Paseo de Gracia, has the answer to this question through the latest photographic exposition that hosts in its garden. “Catalonia from the sky”, which can be visited until the 30th of November, shows 44 images of the claimed French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
A trip along Catalan geography through very different images which go from the Pyrenees to the coast, passing through the cities in which the buildings that have been built along the years have redesigned the Catalan relief. It’s surprising the regularity of Barcelona’s Eixample, the millenary buildings or the human towers raised by the “Castellers” with a bird’s-eye-view.
All images exposed are part of a book published by Lunwerg Editorials, in which hundreds of images supplemented with texts of the socioecologist Ramon Folch (great connoisseur of Catalan’s geography) which interprets the aerial vision of the country.
Furthermore, thanks to Google Glass (glasses technologically developed by Google) and QR Codes, along the tour we can get additional information of each one of the pictures.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand is considered the best specialist in aerial photography worldwide. His pictures of the earth seen from the sky have gone all around the world showing landscapes full of beauty and color, and at the same time, evidences problems that affect our planet. In 1991, he founded Altitude, the first aerial photographic agency in the world. He is also member of the “Académie des Beaux-Arts de l’Institut de France”.
